I love the topping on everything bagels! I worked at Panera Bread for four years back in the day, and I remember every time I’d get a bagel, I’d get the everything bagel. I’d also always get so frustrated that as soon as it went through the slicer, all my precious toppings would fall off. […]

Savory Oatmeal

I always feel a little silly sharing savory dishes here because they’re so simple, and you can really take what I make and create something totally different. However, I do have friends at all different stages of cooking and baking, and sometimes you just need inspiration, even if it is one of the simplest dishes. […]

Rhubarb Blackberry Honey Frangipane Galette

If you at all follow me on social media, you probably have realized there’s certain ingredients I fall in love with and repeatedly use them over and over. I feel like it’s the equivalent to falling in love with a song and listening to it over and over to the point you know all the […]

Finley Scott James Gibson

In 2015 I started writing to a person that didn’t exist quite yet. I started writing notes to a person I thought would one day be my child. My first entries and even more recent ones get very sad. I try to stay honest with where I’m coming from and what exactly I went through. […]

Rhubarb Orange Crumb Muffins

One of my favorite seasons is here: rhubarb season! What is it about them that everyone flips out about? I can’t quite put my finger on it. I know they are delicious, beautiful, and the season is so short. Maybe that’s what it is about them? I saw them in the grocery store and went […]

Caramelized Onions with Gruyère and Black Sesame Seed Scones

I really need to just make scones once a week and have them on hand; I just love them so much. I love that they can be so versatile and always delicious. I had been dreaming of this flavor combo for quite some time, but I just kept putting it off because there was always […]

Brown Butter Banana Bread

Gosh, can banana bread ever be bad? I don’t think so; there’s so many different recipes out there for banana bread, so many different variations. I don’t think you can really go wrong when you make it. (I mean… I know there’s probably some out there that are crap but the majority is great!) There’s […]

Simple Renter’s Friendly Nursery

I used to roll my eyes at people who said the nursery was one of the best parts about pregnancy. While I’m still pregnant writing this, I can’t say what the best part has been, but I will agree with the statement that it is an exciting time to decorate a new space in your […]

Beef Stroganoff

I had this idea not too long ago to start going through the meals I often had growing up in the Midwest. I realized a lot of the meals my parents cooked were not at all what my gentleband’s parents cooked. Our parents are very different from each other. For one, they’re from different eras, and […]

Brown Butter Muscavado Chocolate Chunk Cookies

My last post was a more personal post about our new adventure into parenthood, and as expected, it was the most popular my little journal has ever been. Crazy how people want to be in your personal lives. I think that there’s always a balance that needs to happen, and I hope to always uphold […]
